which the Kayahad gh en him on the terrace of the gate with the
bell-metal doors. The Haya, on seeing the flag, made enquiries

presence, complimented him on the display of his bravery and
rewarded him adequately.    Krsnaraya captured the   fort, and
after winning victory over the Grajapati,   returned  to  Yijaya-
nagara where he continued to rule the kingdom from the throne
of the Narapatis.
